Cat and Jeff | Hope Artiste Village Engagement

We’ve got some really stunning engagement photos for you to check out. You’re going to absolutely love these. Cat and Jeff were going to get married in New Orleans, but wanted to shoot some engagement photos a little closer to home. The spot they picked? None other than the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, RI. It’s a really cool place with a ton of cool spaces to shoot, so we couldn’t have been happier with the choice.

 

Hope Artiste Village Engagement

 

Kearsten joined Cat and Jeff to photograph the session. After meeting up, they walked around and explored the old building. Since it was a weekday afternoon, some of the business owners let us shoot in their spaces. How awesome is that? One detail about Cat and Jeff’s session really stands out: the outfits! This is a fashionable couple for sure. Choosing a variety of outfits that you feel totally awesome is the key to getting the best photos. These two totally nailed it.

 

Cat and Jeff, it was an absolute pleasure to capture your engagement photos for you. Thanks for inviting us to be a part of your story. Be sure to check out highlight from their session below!

Carrie and Peter | Pawtucket Wedding

I was really looking forward to shooting Carrie and Peter’s wedding right from the day we first got together to meet. They were such cool people (still are, for the record) and laid back and I was definitely liking their personalities. The more I heard about their Pawtucket wedding, the cooler it became.

 

They had their reception at The Met in Pawtucket, with their friends (The Silks) playing a rock and roll show for the party. They had the ceremony at Manning Chapel on the Brown campus and we caught some pretty nice weather that let us go wherever we pleased to take photos. They also had an unplugged ceremony, which is the best thing known to mankind.

 

Peter made their invitations (note how awesome they are), being a graphic designer himself. Carrie used red to pop everything and their favors were custom mix CDs for everyone. I grabbed one on the way out and it made its way into Tara’s car. Ezra promptly started to request a couple songs. One of them was “Bad Girl”. He would ask for it by saying “put on the song that I love”. Pretty funny for a sub-three year old.

 

Anyways, Keri came along and filled in as second shooter for us. Jaclyn was away in Florida and Amanda was at another wedding that day with Jess and Dan. Glad to have Keri along! Caleb came and brought the Bluecube. They brought some props of their own, which is always nice and keeps it a little fresh. Michael Jackson cutouts, mustaches, etc…

 

Everything went really well and it was a good time had by all. We’ve already put together some sweet albums for Carrie, Peter, and their parents. They opted for the metal cover on a nice little 8×12 book with rigid pages. I think it looks great. I’d love to show you some pictures of it, but it’s already been delivered and I totally forgot to shoot it before giving it away! Oh well. Enjoy, guys!
